The trailer shows the main character of The Promised Neverland, in Identity V’s unique art style. Emma And The Gardener will have their own storylines, involving a door leading to either hope or despair.
Very little else has been given regarding the collaboration, including whether or not they would add a unique Hunter for the event as well.
NetEase did tease some significance to the hydra logo at the end of the trailer though, saying that it might have something to do with morse code. In their press statement, they said the following:
What’s the secret behind the hydra pattern shown at the end of the trailer? The main protagonist of The Promised Neverland series, Emma, specializes in Morse code—Perhaps she could decode the meaning behind the mysterious pattern?
The Promised Neverland is a popular manga series that recently got an anime adaptation. While we won’t spoil it’s big twists, anyone who’s read the manga would agree that the Identity V X The Promised Neverland Crossover was merely a matter of time due to their similar themes.
This isn’t the first time the game has teamed up with a popular Japanese IP, though, as they recently launched the Dangan Ronpa crossover event.
